Today I’m sharing a peekaboo card I made with products from the Whale of a Time Suite. When the card is closed, you see a whale peeking through a round window. When you open it, the whale disappears and the sentiment is in the window. I was surprised at how easy this was to put together. To me, the hardest part about a peekaboo card is getting the round holes to line up just right. I used the Whale Done Bundle (Whale Done stamp set and Whale Builder Punch) and Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper.

Here’s what I made:

When the card is folded flat, no Calypso Coral will show through the window. I propped it up for the photo, so it completely flat.Whale of a Time peekaboo card, Whale Done stamp set, Whale Builder Punch, Candy Ford #stampcandy #handmadecards #stampinup

 

The sentiment is starting to show as the card is opened and the sentiment panel slides to the right.Whale of a Time peekaboo card, Whale Done stamp set, Whale Builder Punch, Candy Ford #stampcandy #handmadecards #stampinup

 

Fully open, the whale is covered by the sentiment.Whale of a Time peekaboo card, Whale Done stamp set, Whale Builder Punch, Candy Ford #stampcandy #handmadecards #stampinup

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • first piece of Calypso Coral card stock (CS) cut to 8-1/2″ x 4-1/4″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • second piece of Calypso Coral CS cut to 8-1/4″ x 4-1/4″, then scored at 5-1/2″
  • third piece of Calypso Coral CS cut to 5-3/4″ x 4-1/4″, then scored at 5-1/2″
  • Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ for front of card
  • 2 pieces of DSP cut to about 3″ x 3″ (light blue water)

Stamped with the Whale Done stamp set:

  • sentiment in Pacific Point ink onto one of the 3″ DSP pieces
  • tiny fish in Calypso Coral, Pacific Point, Granny Apple Green, and Shaded Spruce inks onto the large DSP layer
  • coral and seaweed in Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green, and Shaded Spruce inks onto the inside of the card front

Cut using the Layering Circle Dies:

  • using the 4th largest plain circle die, cut the large DSP layer, larger part of the 8-1/4″ Calypso Coral CS, and both halves of the 8-1/2″ Calypso Coral CS, making sure they all line up with each other

Cut using the Whale Builder Punch:

  • whale from a piece of DSP

Assembled the peekaboo card:

  • burnished the folds in the three Calypso Coral CS pieces with a Bone Folder
  • large DSP layer glued onto the larger side of the 8-1/4″ Calypso Coral CS, lining up the die cut holes
  • one half of the 8-1/2″ Calypso Coral CS glued onto the back of the 8-1/4″ Calypso Coral CS, lining up the die cut holes
  • 1/4″ flap of the 5-3/4″ Calypso Coral CS glued onto the back of the loose end (opposite the end glued onto the 8-1/2″ piece)
  • small DSP layer with sentiment glued onto the smaller side of the 8-1/4″ Calypso Coral CS, so it will show through the holes when the card is closed
  • other small DSP layer glued onto the 5-3/4″ Calypso Coral CS so it will show through the holes
  • whale glued onto the small DSP layer so it shows through the holes
  • fold as shown in the photos

 

This gives you an idea of how the pieces are put together. See the diagram below.Whale of a Time peekaboo card, Whale Done stamp set, Whale Builder Punch, Candy Ford #stampcandy #handmadecards #stampinup
